Hello guys! I've been surfing the web for hours now to find the right SSD for me. I have an ExpressCard SSD which unfortunately is having too many problems so I am planning on buying the MCE OptiBay to replace the SuperDrive with a second hard drive. So my intention is to buy a cheap/small SSD to install OS X on it and to keep the home folder on the internal drive. There seem to be two SSDs which fit into that category. I need some advice whether those two products even work on my MacBook Pro Early 2008 2,4GHz, or if there are any other incompatibilities & problems. I hope you guys can help me out here So one of the requirements of the MCE OptiBay is "OptiBay Bare Enclosure with SATA Hard Drive Interface requires a 2.5" SATA hard drive 9.5mm or less in height". By the way, I heard that the controller of the SSD is very important. I don't really know much about this so I rely on you guys to help me with the decision. So the two candidates are Intel X25-V 40GB or OCZ Vertex 30GB. The OCZ offers less space and costs slightly more but neither of them are really significant as they are in my price range. The OCZ ("Read: Up to 230 MB/s & Write: Up to 135 MB/s") seems to be much faster then the Intel one ("Read: up to 170MB/s & Write: up to 35MB/s"). Especially the writing speed of the Intel X25-V is really poor, even when compared to normal HDDs. So, I would get the OCZ Vertex 30GB. Would it work well with my MacBook Pro Early 2008 2,4GHz? What about this controller thing? I read that the OCZ uses a Indilinx controller. I have no idea what this means, I just want it to work great on my Mac. And does it even fit the OptiBay? According to Amazon.co.uk the dimensions are "10 x 7 x 0.9 cm"..so this should be fine right? I just want to make sure. Thanks!
